South Bay Street Races Stopped in Tracks

Hundreds waiting to watch race

Police and California Highway Patrol officers this morning broke  up a group of hundreds of motorists who had gathered to watch street racing  in South San Jose, San Jose police Officer Jermaine Thomas said.
Drivers passing by the area notified police around 1:35 a.m. that  about 200 cars had gathered in the area of Santa Teresa Boulevard and Bailey  Avenue, Thomas said.

Hundreds of people were waiting to watch the street race, which  had not yet started, according to Thomas.

CHP officers assisted San Jose police in breaking up the crowd and  issuing citations for emissions violations. Thomas said street racing in  South San Jose is not uncommon.

"It happens every now and then down in that area," he said.
